3:00am
here's my senior prom picture. i love the red beading. >> it is your turn to share your awesomely bad or good prom memories with us. >> tweet them to us at fox friends first or shoot us an e-mail and we'll be showing some every day for the next few weeks. >> "fox & friends" starts now. >>gretchen: gore kwrus pictures, ladies -- gorgeous pictures, ladies. good morning. it is monday, may 13. >> it wasn't just a tea party. the i.r.s. targeted people who, quote, wanted to make america a better place to live. >> i don't care if you're a conservative, liberal, democrat or republican, this should send a chill up your spine. >>gretchen: new information this morning. >>steve: guess who was
3:01am
barely interviewed about the attack on our consolate in benghazi. hillary rodham clinton. wait till you hear why. >>brian: we've got a friend to interview from the cockpit. "fox & friends" starts now. >>steve: do you really need to turn off your phone? is it really going to afblgt the operation of the -- going to affect the operation of the jet aircraft? >>brian: okay, alec baldwin. now you're challenging. that's what he said. >>gretchen: the stuff i want to know is what are the signs you might be in trouble when you're on the airplane. >>brian: do you really need landing gear? can't we just skid right in? >>steve: generally you don't want to stick around for the ntsb.
3:02am
>>brian: i'd rather go down that spiral rather than single file. >>steve: i was actually evacuated off an airplane where the front wheels broke off. >>brian: just you? >>steve: no. me and 185 other people after a trip from hawaii. >>brian: no wonder you see ablow every day. >>gretchen: maybe that's in my headlines. o.j. simpson due back in court today to plead for a new trial. lawyers call it a hail mary. he claims his reputation is so bad his conviction should be reversed and a new trial ordered. most people lose these motions. i started to say emotions. the former football great was acquitted of killing his wife and a friend in 1995. in 2008 he was convicted of stealing back his sports memorabilia at gunpoint in las vegas. he's serving a 9 to 33 year
3:03am
sentence. >> back to the house where three women suffered a decade of horrors now boarded up to preserve evidence. officials want to keep it intact until the trial of ariel castro is over. dramatic new cell phone video shows police officers busting down the door of the house leading to the rescue of those women. the witness also snapped this picture of victim amanda berry clutching her daughter as she's led away by neighbor charles ramsey. >> the government has until today to appeal a new york judge's ruling to lift age restrictions on the morning-after pill. earlier this phopbgd -- month the f.d.a. lowered the age from 17 to 15. the justice department's failure to appeal the new york ruling would clear the way for over-the-counter sales of plan b to even younger girls. >> after 53 years in
3:04am
journalism, barbara walters pulling the plug on her tv career. the 83-year-old expected to announce she's retiring next summer on the view this morning. those are your headlines. i guess those rumors are true. >>brian: now we'll see who else gets rotated off the couch. >>steve: on friday an american bar association meeting, there was a woman by the name of lois learner, the head i.r.s. tax-exempt organization operator. she said you know what -- to a question. we feel really bad, but we did investigate some people involved in tea party organizations, anything with tea party or government in their titles, and it sounded really bad. now as it turns out, it turns out there were more with groups with tea party or patriot in the title. take a look at this. >> issues that included government spending, government debt or taxes,
3:05am
education to the public by advocacy or lobbying to make america a better place to live. any of those statements in the case file would then be scrutinized by the i.r.s. >>brian: or how the country is being run at all. those involve educating america on the constitution or bill of rights. that's a huge swath and an interesting target. the guy in charge of this was asked point-blank are you guys looking into these groups? no, absolutely not. did he know? was this being done at a level below him? was he just out of touch? was he covering for somebody? a low-level i.r.s. agent actually make sweeping decisions like this? >>gretchen: i think it's interesting because it parallels the other discussion going on in benghazi about lower-level people and whether the top people had any involvement. it seems to be a theme here potentially. that had politicians over the weekend very upset and it shouldn't just be republicans, democrats, independents. it should be everybody. >> i don't care if you're a
3:06am
conservative, a liberal, democrat or republican, this should send a chill up your spine. this is something that we cannot let stand. it needs to have a full investigation. >> this is truly outrageous and it contributes to the profound distrust that the american people have in government. it is absolutely chilling that the i.r.s. was singling out conservative groups for extra review. and i think that it's very disappointing that the president hasn't personally condemned this and spoken out. >>brian: unless of course he knew about it. if he didn't know about it, he should be more outraged than anyone the i.r.s. is used for this purpose. but i don't know how upset he could be because these groups tend to go against a lot of the policies he implements. >>gretchen: remember when they had those protests on
3:07am
wall street. what was that movement called? >>steve: occupy. >>gretchen: any way, were there any investigations into occupy wall street? that was, i guess, on the other side of the fence. were there i.r.s. investigations being done for that? >>steve: this is clearly against the law what they've done. what's interesting is they're trying to put this fire out. and in fact they keep going it was low-level people in the cincinnati office. yet the american center for law and justice is representing -- it's a legal outfit representing 27 different conservative outfits. and they say they got inquiries from i.r.s. offices all across the country, not just from cincinnati. all across the country. this thing is going to grow. you just watch. >>brian: if you're an i.r.s. agent making $80,000 a year are you going to let your career go by the board if you were just following orders or if you're the c.e.o. are you going to say i might as well destroy my
3:08am
own career? meanwhile i was doing what i was told. the key is -- >>steve: the key is who came up with this great idea. we want to know who that person is and who told them that was a good idea. >>gretchen: this is the way many corporations -- i shouldn't say many -- but some corporations work. the underlings insulate the top. that's how it's been for decades. the same can be said about benghazi. you had admiral pickering on the sunday talk shows saying just that, saying it wasn't necessary to interview former secretary of state hillary clinton, the person at the top. they went to the underlings and said we found out enough information from them. this is status quo for the way a lot of top people are insulated. >>brian: he said if we
3:09am
had questions we would have asked but we didn't have questions for her or secretary burns. let's listen. >> we interviewed secretary clinton, secretary burns and the deputy secretary. we briefed them on the report, told them where we were. it was near the end. we had plenty opportunity, had we felt it was necessary, all five of us to ask them questions if we felt it was necessary. >>steve: darrell issa, that runs the house committee that had the investigation last we can said hillary clinton is not a target. president obama is not a target. but you've got to wonder why they haven't talked to people like, for instance, national security advisor tom donelon. he is running the ship at the white house. why haven't we heard from him? >>brian: we heard from him when bin laden was killed. >>steve: keep in mind this guy is a former political advisor.
3:10am
he worked at fannie and freddie. in bob woodward's books obama's wars, the secretary of defense at the time said donilon would be a disaster as national security advisor. >>brian: that guy was told to leave. >>steve: i was saying if don i lon was said to be a disaster, and there he is, you've got to wonder if his finger prints are all over this. >>gretchen: did you see the press conference where jay carney had to ask pointed questions for the first time with regard to benghazi, whether or not the white house had any involvement with that, specifically, regarding those talking points? abc had done a report that came out earlier in the morning that said those talking points had been edited as much as 12 times. so is the mainstream media now going to be continuing on with this story? it appears that they may be. here's a snippet from the
3:11am
sunday show. >> clearly there's a credibility question that the white house has to deal with because it directly contradicts what they have said about this. >> a week ago mr. carney whose you feelness to this administration -- whose usefulness to this administration is diminishing rapidly -- this is a very live issue. >>brian: is jay carney being the fall guy here? we all know jay carney is a spokesperson for the administration. he is not setting policy. and that is one thing tony snowe said when he went to the white house, he said i'm not going to take this job unless you put me in the meetings. i'm wondering is jay carney in the meetings or is he getting handed talking points? this is destroying his career because he is contradicted on this particular issue four separate times as he down played what the c.i.a. was putting in the report, what they actually came out with, who was to blame for the conclusions that proved to be faulty. >>steve: any time there is a question asked of jay
3:12am
carney and it is something prepared for, if you notice, he reads a card off the top of his lectern. he's got things he's supposed to say. he is just the mouthpiece for this administration. it is the job of the white house press corps to ask the really tough questions. it is interesting because people are starting to wake up in the mainstream media -- thank goodness. maureen dowd yesterday wrote the administration's behavior before and during the attack in benghazi in which four americans died was unworthy of the greatest power on earth. there were other people in the mainstream media going we kind of trusted these guys. maybe we shouldn't have. >>brian: pickering is pushing back hard. former secretary of defense gates yesterday came forward. he said if i was secretary of defense, i wouldn't have sent an f-16 over there because i was afraid shoulder fire missiles might take them out. that is why i would have held back. here's what they don't answer. how do they know it was a nine-hour attack. how many hours would it take to do something? let's say it was a 24-hour
3:13am
attack, two-day attack? secretary of state gates, why is it okay for those four guys that sit on the top of the roof of an annex building and fight for their lives but an f-16 pilot's life would be more valuable? >>gretchen: i think one of the major questions is why the top-level people all have the same story that appears to be crumbling now. >>brian: what the secretary of state said to the father and mother who lost their son? we're going to put that producer in jail. >>steve: it turns out the talking points were a fabrication, and each time they changed it we got farther and farther from the truth. >>brian: is asking opportunities who have a 2.0 grade point average too much? if you live in one spate apparently. we'll -- if you live in one state apparently.
3:14am
we'll explain. >>gretchen: stuart varney on tech. good-- on deck. good-- on deck. good morning, stu. join us at projectluna.com good-- on deck. good morning, stu.
3:15am
it shows. we don't run like that. we build john deere equipment the way we always have: the right way. times change. our principles don't. you don't just have our word on it. you've got our name on it.
3:16am

3:17am
here at the hutchison household. but one dark stormy evening... there were two things i could tell: she needed a good meal and a good family. so we gave her what our other cats love, purina cat chow complete. it's the best because it has something for all of our cats! and after a couple of weeks she was healthy, happy, and definitely part of the family. we're so lucky that lucy picked us. [ female announcer ] purina cat chow complete. always there for you. >>brian: the i.r.s. targeting tea party and other conservative groups applying for tax exempt status after the agency claimed accusations were fault.
3:18am
last year the i.r.s. commissioner assured americans there was no wrongdoing there. >> can you give us assurances the i.r.s. is not targeting political groups based on political leanings. >> absolutely no targeting. this is the back and forth that happens when people am ply for 501 -- apply for 501-4-c status. >>brian: stuart varney is here to weigh in. >> let's start at the very beginning. if you start a political group, you are tax-exempt so long as you do not target individual candidates. that gives you tax exempt status. all of these references to tax exempt status goes to the cincinnati office of the i.r.s. that's where the tax exempt proposals are vetted. turns out that they were specially treating any group with the name tea party or patriot or 912 in the title of their group.
3:19am
then that was expanded. in january of 2012 that was expanded to include groups which are trying to educate people about the constitution or criticize the way the government is run. you get special treatment. you get real scrutiny if you're in that group. you're educating people about the constitution, and this is what happens to you? now fast forward to the present. we've obviously got a scandal on our hands, and michele bachmann says what about obamacare? what happens if you're opposed to obamacare? you try to educate the public about obamacare. you get an audit from the i.r.s.? the big picture is it's like richard nixon, you're using the administration, using the political apparatus of the administration to intimidate your political opponents. that's exactly what appears to have happened right here. >>brian: michele bachmann was ahead of the curve on this, now they're all caught doing this. my hope is, stuart, they'll have to play it straight on
3:20am
obamacare because the world is watching what they're doing here. if media matters, do you think you're getting audited? >> how far does this go? groups with the name tea party, or patriot or 912. what about individuals? obviously conservative who oppose president obama, how do we know they weren't targeted for special treatment, a special look at how they make their tax returns? we don't know that. i'd like to know the truth. >>brian: we're not going to know the truth until we find out who told that cincinnati office to do what they're doing and then we'll find out how many people want to fall on their sword for somebody else. >> who knew when did they know and why did they start it? >>brian: varney and company 9:20 eastern time. >> navy seal shot down and killed by al qaeda.
3:21am
years later family members are still looking for answers. >> the u.s. government and high-ranking government credit own more credit for the shootdown than the the shootdown than the taliban. [ female announcer ] at jcpenney, we never stop being amazed by you. so we brought back what you loved. added new surprises. and now, you've come back to us. we're speechless. except for two little words. ♪
3:22am

3:24am
>>brian: police in new orleans searching for as many as three gunmen after 19 people including two kids were injured in a shooting on mother's day at a parade. the f.b.i. describing the crime as a flairup of street violence. accused dark knight shooter james holmes will plead guilty for insanities then have a mental health evaluation. gretch? >>gretchen: after the
3:25am
raid that took out osama bin laden in 2011 the form erly seal team 6 became well known. then troops were taken down in afghanistan killing everyone on board. last week family members asked the administration for answers. >> the u.s. government and many high-ranking military people own more credit for the shootdown than the taliban. >> because preassault fire damages our efforts to win the hearts and mind of our enemy. so, in other words, the hearts and minds of our enemy are more valuable to this government than my son's blood. >>gretchen: karen and billy vaughn parents of the seal team member killed in that mission join me now. good morning. i know yesterday karen it must have been so tough for
3:26am
you on mother's day and my heart goes out to both of you. >> thank you. thank you very much for allowing us to be here. >> thank you for allowing us to be here, gretchen. thank you. >> you're welcome. i know you have many unanswered questions. on top of losing that son -- i can't imagine that pain -- but then to not have the answers as to why must be almost impossible to get through a day. if i had to ask what the top three questions are that you want answers from our government, what would they be? >> one, gretchen, there were seven afghanistans commandos on the chopper which the military report states the names were different on the manifest. the men who died in the chopper crash were not the ones who were supposed to be on there. they were changed at the last moment. they were changed too late for them to be added to the manifest, which never happens. >>gretchen: i understand, karen, you have questions
3:27am
about rules of engagement and how it affects what? >> gretchen, that night when aaron and the 29 other americans died, they came in to that zone with no pre-salt -- preassault fire. let me explain. in every cop movie what do policemen scream when he goes into a hot zone? cover me. they weren't allowed that benefit and i want to know why. they say in our documentation preassault fire, one in a million chance you get a chance for that. we asked them why and they said it damages the hearts and minds of the afghani. that is not acceptable. we were told along those same things, rules of engagement, we were told by people in the field that you have to basically be shot at twice in many instances before you are allowed to return fire. this is insanity. we don't deserve this as
3:28am
parents. >>gretchen: i also understand you're questioning why they were going on this mission at all; right? >> absolutely. >> yes. we can't find out why, even in the 1,250 pages we have. people who were in theater said they don't know why this mission was spun up. and one man testifies that in over 400 missions, we've never done one like this. >>gretchen: do you both think there is something bigger here? are you suggesting that this mission was done for a reason, because so many people on this helicopter were from seal team 6? >> i won't suggest that, but we do need answers. and last night we had a team 6 recently retired call us, talk to us who knew aaron and the other guys. a high-ranking admiral told us that your son was comfortable with the way we were operating over there.
3:29am
last night this guy said many times we passed each other on the second deck and the shooters would be talking to each other and say we know we're going to die in a helicopter crash because of the helicopter reviews, not special operations. he said we know damned well what's going to happen. we talked to each other all the time. he also said that we know that one day we're going to have a suicide bomber crawl on a chopper with us and we've talked to the higher ups about it, and when we talk to them about it, they say we're just being illogical, not going to happen. and he said because they don't understand the enemy. >> this is because of this ideology of working these forces together. navy seals have no business working with the afghani forces or training them. that's not their job. our son trained for years before he was allowed to go on his first deployment as did those others. by the time he reached tier 1, navy seals team 6 he should not be on training missions where he's being compromised by what could potentially be the enemy
3:30am
because we know that all of these agencies are compromised. and it's very possible that something dasterdly went on that night. why are they continuing to let this go on? why are young men and women being slaughtered by people they call our friends? >>gretchen: we know you have many unanswered questions and we hope you can get those answers. thank you. >> coming up on "fox & friends," infamous hoax ter at tawanna brawley getting the royal treatment now. why people are lining up to give her cash.
3:31am
why are twice as many people choosing verizon over any other carrier? many choose us because we have the largest 4glte network. others, because of our reputation for reliability. or maybe it's because we've received jd power and associates' customer service award 4x in a row. in the end, there are countless reasons. but one choi. with thermacare heatwraps. the only wrap with patented heat cells that penetrate deep to relax, soothe, and unlock tight muscles. and now, introducing reusable thermacare cold wraps. pain relief without the shock of ice.
3:32am
3:33am
right. but the most important feature of all is... the capital one purchase eraser. i can redeem the double miles i earned with my venture card to erase recent travel purchases. d with a few clicks, this mission never happened. uh, what's this button do? [ electricity zaps ] ♪ you requested backup? yes. yes i did. what's in your wallet? ...amelia... neil and buzz: for teaching us that you can't create the future... by clinging to the past. and with that: you're history. instead of looking behind... delta is looking beyond. 80 thousand of us investing billions... in everything from the best experiences below... to the finest comforts above. we're not simply saluting history... we're making it.
3:34am
[music] >>gretchen: this goes out to all the moms yesterday iny mother-in-law. this is a very special moment when we can showcase what we do when we're not sitting here doing "fox & friends," which is in my case being mom. here are my two kids kaya and christian, eight and nine years old. yesterday i spent about four hours at the church because it was the church musical for the kids. my daughter played the role
3:35am
of mary that talks about when jesus was in the temple when he was 12 years old and my son was zechariah. congratulations to both of them. >>steve: at the doocey house we had a special mother's day. our daughter came back from college on mother's day. it was the perfect day for a reunion. now we're getting closer to being back together which is good which is what families with kids away from school look forward to. as kids come back summer can start. >>brian: we had a great mother's day celebration. however a police sketch artist canceled at the last minute. >>steve: police were involved in your mother's day activities again? >>brian: as usual. we had a great mother's day to everybody involved including my mom. >>gretchen: now let's do headlines. we have to tell but this story. homeland security officials say cyber attacks aimed at u.s. corporations are on
3:36am
the rise. officials say hackers are trying to sabotage companies to seize control of operating system. the primary targets have been energy companies so far. officials say they don't know where the attacks are coming from but they seem to be somewhere in the middle east. >>steve: infamous hoaxter tawana brawley getting rock star treatment. people handed her wads of cash to fund legal costs. she is being sued by one of the guys she falsely accused of rape. why are they helping her? people say they feel bad for her. what about the guy she maligned? what about him? >>gretchen: cops in spain crawling on all fours on the rooftop of a building after a fugitive spotted sunbathing at a luxury resort.

3:38am
when he would hit the ball but not waiting for it when they played together. sergio choked big time down the stretch twice hitting the water at 17. he finished eighth. david lingreth a long birdie on 18? no go. tiger wins his second players championship, his 78th overall. he's already had four victories this year. for those who said this guy was done, they are wrong. tiger woods walks away with this. >>steve: i think it's official, he's pretty good. >>gretchen: i think that's true. >>steve: look at this incredible video. a tsunami of ice plowed into two dozen lakeside homes in central canada leaving behind a complete mess. the extraordinary event lasted just 15 minutes and forced residents to run for their lives. the snow is coming. >> i saw the ice just
3:39am
coming, just moving so quickly. then the ice came right through the living room here. he said grab your coats, grab whatever you can. get the keys. we've got to get out of here. >>steve: that is as crazy as it gets. thankfully nobody was hurt in the freak disaster. >> check out this cell phone video. it captures a wave of ice blanketing backyards and threatening houses in minnesota. look at that. that's just crazy. >> maria molina joins us outside on the plaza where i do not believe there is ice. >> milder temperatures are expected which will cause that ice tsunami to be pushed over land. we have freeze warnings and frost advisories in effect as far south as parts of

3:42am
filling on them here. then you put the other heart on top and you use these great little craft sticks that you can find at any craft store. you bake them up. good to go. >>brian: you don't want the crust, you don't want the mess. why not put it in a jar? >> these make great gifts especially for parents who have teachers' gifts to give. all you do is stick the pie filling into the mason jar, throw it into the oven with the pie crust on top. you can put the top back ofpblt you can cut out little designs with everything. >>gretchen: you brought liquor for brian and me? >> i did. >>brian: what is this? >> that's gin and apple juice. i was going to make something up but i figured that would be a little crazy for this hour in the morning. >>gretchen: yes. brian got in trouble on friday. what is this? >> if you really don't want to do anything, have your phone do it for you. foursquare has this amazing free app. i put in their search

>>gretchen: 47 minutes after the top of the hour. if you're just waking up, quick headlines. anthony weiner will not get the clinton support if he runs for mayor of new york city. according to "the new york post" the clintons wish he would disappear. the source says every time he makes headlines it is a reminder of bill's scandal with monica lewinsky. >> saturday night live star seth myers moving to the tonight -- moving to replace jimmy fallon. >>steve: there are questions major airlines refuse to answer. here to spill the industry secrets, a pilot with over 30 years of flight
3:48am
experience. he's just written a new book called "cockpit confidential: everything you need to know about air travel." good morning, patrick. why did you write the book? >> i wrote the book to first and foremost inform. there's a lot of just bad information out there when it comes to air travel. >>steve: let me ask you a couple of questions. first of all, in the beginning after they close the door, the flight attendant says you've got to turn off your cell phone and any electronic things. we imagine if the cell phone is off and we're taking off, we might crash the plane. do we have to turn off cell phones? >> people think there's this conspiracy and rules are arbitrary and it's part of the airlines hating everybody and wanting to tick off their customers. there's not true. there's a lot about electronic interference we don't know and there is plenty of anecdotal information out there that cell phones can interfere. there's at least two incidents, one in switzerland, one in new
3:49am
zealand where they believe cell phone interference was the cause. i think a lot of this is a social issue. do you really want to be on a plane where there's 200 people talk? the airplane is often the quietest part of the traveling experience. as long as there's not a screaming kids. u.s. airports are so loud. there's layer after layer of p.a. announcements and the gate side tv screens. it's nice to get on the plane and chill out. >>steve: you just mentioned screaming kids. a pilot like yourself, you're kind of separated from the screaming public, but does it drive you nuts. because if i'm sitting next to one, even though i raised three, it gets under my skin after awhile. >> i don't want to make all the moms out there angry so i'll back away from that. >>steve: in the beginning of the flight, the flight attendant gives the safety briefing. do we still need to find out how to buckle a safety
3:50am
belt? we've been doing that for 50 years, and those things take like five minutes and nobody is paying attention. >> what that briefing is a bunch of legal fine print come to life. i mean, there's a lot of good information there but it's so weighed down with extra language that it's hard to pick up. my favorite one is tampering with, disabling or destroying a lavatory spoke detector. doesn't tampering cover the whole thing. there's so much extra wording in everything that comes over that announcement. >>steve: on your next flight this is the perfect book to take with you to find out what's going on in the cockpit. it's called "cockpit confidential." patrick smith, thank you very much. >>gretchen: now you can't even close your own business without giving the government some money. next hour, more proof that we're living in a regulation nation. one animal shelter had a big, huge donation to save their business but a couple
3:51am
of weeks they found out it was meant for a different shelter. should they have to pay the money back now?
3:52am
we used to live with a bear. [growl] we'd always have to go everywhere with it. get in the front. we drive. it was so embarrasing that we just wanted to say, well,
3:53am
go away. shoo bear. but we can't really tell bears what to do. moooooommmmmm!!! then one day, it was just gone. mom! [announcer] you are how you sleep. tempur-pedic.
3:54am
>>gretchen: a shelter with a mission to save one town's animals had been struggling financially. when it thought its money's problems had been resolved it learned a lawsuit was sent to them by mistake after being confused with another shelter. >>brian: should they have to pay it back? joining them is the founder of that shelter. susan, did you decide to pay this money back? >> we did. we sent it back to them. i think the lady who left it in their trust wanted it for collinsville, illinois. we respected her wishes.
3:55am
>>brian: where was the misunderstanding? >> well, i got a phone call asking me to verify our address, and i verified our address, and they said they were sending us a letter that was going to tell us about a trust that -- we were part of a trust that we were getting. it went from there. they verified us. they called us and made sure we were who they thought we were. we did everything we were supposed to do. when we received the letter from them for the amount, i called them and said we don't know this lady. do you know how we're connected. they said no but that's not unusual for us not to know that. we filled out all the paper work, had it notarized, had our attorney look at it, send it in. and march 22 we got a check for $188,901 .03, and we nearly -- you know, what a blessing because it gave us the security to keep the shelter going. you never know from month to month if we're going to have enough money.
3:56am
>>gretchen: a couple of weeks later you got the call, oops, this was supposed to go to a shelter that had a similar name and they wanted the money back. long story short, they're going to give you $12,000 of that money? >> the attorneys are going to get part of their fee for working with the trust and they're giving us $12,000 of that fee. >>brian: you're doing a great thing, saving dogs lives on a daily basis. people want to make up for that gap. go to www.www. www.www.ahon-line.org. >>gretchen: we'll link that to "fox & friends" as well. >> appreciate it. >>brian: straight ahead, new information about obama care. did you know where you live will make a difference in what you'll pay for drugs? we have the stunning numbers. >>gretchen: more on our top story, the i.r.s. targeting conservative groups. who made the decision and how is this allowed to happen? donald trump knows a lot about money and the i.r.s. he's here at the top of the

"fox & friends" hour two for monday starts right now.
4:01am
>> i'm donald trump and you're watching "fox & friends." if you turn the channel, you're fired. >> steve: he knows something about that. he fired two people last night. >> gretchen: yeah, right off the bat. we'll be talking to donald in just a moment. but first the headlines. video from said's shooting at a mother's day parade. you can see the large crowd gathered, then a man in a white shirt points a gun and starts firing. some people fall while others run for their lives. 19 people injured, including two children. police now look for this man and possibly two others. o. j. simpson due back in court today to plead for a new trial. lawyers calling it a hail mary. he claims his representation was so bad that his conviction should be reversed and a new trial ordered. most people lose their -- these type of motion. he was acquitted of killing his wife and a friend in 1995, but then in 2008, he was convicted of stealing back his sports
4:02am
memorabilia at gun point in vegas. he's serving a nine to 33-year sentence. torture house where three women suffered a decade of unthinkable horrors now board up and fenced in to try and preserve the evidence inside. officials want to keep it intact until the trial of suspected abductor ariel castro is over. dramatics new cell video. watch this. this is police busting down the door of that house leading to the rescue of the victims. the witness also snapped this picture of amanda berry clutching her daughter as she is led away by neighbor charles ramsey. after 53 years in journalism, broadcaster barbara walters is going to pull the plug on her tv career. the 83-year-old expected to announce she's retiring next summer on "the view" this morning. she will remain executive producer of that show which she created back in 1997. we wish her all the best in retirement. i have a feeling she won't just
4:03am
be sitting still. she'll still be working. >> brian: donald trump is with us. he also never sits still. are you against barbara walters retiring? >> no, i like barbara walters. she's a friend of mine. i was one of her ten people last season. it's a big honor. >> brian: that's great. >> she's great. i think she probably won't be retiring. she'll probably change her mind once she gets to that time. >> brian: has the irs ever targeted you? >> wow, i don't know. i've been reading about this. this is a big, big story that is probably going to get a lot bigger. this is a terrible thing. >> gretchen: for people who maybe were away for the weekend and not following everything, what's happening is that it's being revealed irs is targeting conservative groups. some of the key words they were look for, i think this is what's so chilling. words like first amendment, second amendment, tea party, patriot, people who wanted to in some cases make the country a better place. >> right. >> gretchen: what's so wrong with that and how scary is this
4:04am
to you? >> just not supposed to happen. they have laws against it. if this were somebody else, this would be the bigger story. and maybe it will in fact be the bigger story. i've been watching it for the last four days getting bigger and bigger and even some of our liberal friends are sort of saying, this is really bad. between this and benghazi, benghazi had this come out like this before the election, you could have had a different rum. >> steve: absolutely. talk about liberal guys. it's on the front page above the fold of the "new york times." so that goes to show you how big it is today. donald, the people from the irs who have spoken and one of them already apologized on friday, said you know, these were just low level people in one office, although there is already evidence that it's from irs offices all across the country. do you really think it was just some low level guys who said, hey, let's really screw these conservatives by doing this? >> because it doesn't happen that way. that's not life. that's not the way it happens. this potentially could be a bombshell. we're going to have to see how this plays out overt next few
4:05am
days. this potentially could be a major rocket. >> brian: because if it goes up the ladder? >> where does it stop? and does it stop like at the top person? where is it going to stop and if you remember, your friend richard nixon had some of these problems. >> steve: our friend. >> if they treat this group like they treated nixon, it's not going to be pretty. >> brian: let me ask you something, if you're the ceo of a company or you're the president of the united states, you should be just as outraged about this because it reflects on you. do you call on the president to step forward and say something? >> you know, they did doing that and so far he hasn't responded. i guess he wants to get his ducks in order, but he hasn't responded. it's going to be very interesting. next week at this time when we speak, i think a lot of things will come out there is no way this is low level. this is high level. >> gretchen: we were talking earlier about how this is -- i don't know if it's typical, but it's not surprising that in corporations or government, oftentimes the underlings take the hit for what the person at
4:06am
the top actually did. so i find it interesting that not only with the irs story, but also with the benghazi story, it seems to be a central theme here. do you believe that really the people at the top of the food chain with regard to benghazi, i'm speak of the president maybe even -- secretary of state formally, hillary clinton, do you believe that they were responsible or really is the underlings as their people are trying to tell us? >> you have to remember and you have to put it in context, when this all came up, it came up just before the election. they didn't want terrorism because that would have made us look very bad because we defended it. we went in and we fought for them and remember i used to talk about the so-called rebels like gone with the wind, these rebels that we don't know who the hell they are. but they fought and we put a lot on the line for these people and then they went and killed and what they did to the ambassador hasn't even come up 'cause i've heard stories of what they did as they were killing him and after they killed him. and people don't even talk about that. so what happened is they didn't want this to come out before the
4:07am
election because this could have changed the election. that's when you and i and everybody was so disappointed at the third debate when benghazi was brought up and mitt didn't really want to make a big deal out of it. this turned out to be a big deal. now, if this were now and the election were in a week from now, benghazi could have turned around the election as it turned out. it's turning out to be a mess. but they accomplished their goal. they wanted it to be kept on the low burners. now it's getting to be on the high burnsers. we'll see where it goes. on benghazi, it really didn't resonate very much and now all of a sudden it's resonating big league. had that taken place before the election, you could have seen a different result. >> brian: senator feinstein here goes out of his way to say yeah, that election is passed and this is rogers as well on "meet the press." the target might be hillary. listen. >> my concern is when hillary clinton's name is mentioned 32 times in a hearing, that a point
4:08am
of a hearing is to discredit the secretary of state who has very high popularity and may well be a candidate for president. so i understand republicans had a grievance 'cause this happened a month before the election and every effort has been made to turn it into something that's diabolical. i don't see that. >> i doubt anyone can say we've been partisan or political in this. i do believe you have to have a fact-based investigation. i think that's what we're do. as a matter of fact, the people who testified, these are serious 20-year veterans, at least in one case, of the state department who felt so strongly, they wanted to come out and testify. >> steve: in particular, when he's talking about some of the people who were the whistle blowers, donald trump, gregory hicks is somebody who certainly doesn't have an ax to grind with hillary clinton because she voted for him -- rather he voted for her when she was running for president and in the primary, and then eventually voted for
4:09am
barak obama twice. so you really can't say it's political. he just wants the truth out. >> this is a watergate teach scandal, to be honest. and the difference is people died here and really died a gruesome death. but this is the potential to be watergate. so it could affect the current president and it could very well affect -- i don't know, i think hillary has a big problem. >> steve: when you say it rises to the level of watergate, do you mean it's an impeachable event? >> it depends where it oilstones. the whole thing with e-mails, you find if you can get access and they don't want to give access to their records, to really important records, i think you'll see some things that will shock you. yeah, i'm saying it and i heard other people say it, this is potentially watergate with death involved. watergate didn't have death. this has the element of death. we lost great people here. due to imcompetence or stupidity or something, i don't know n a certain way worse.
4:10am
>> gretchen: to clarify some of the e-mails members of congress have seen, but they haven't been released to them. who knows if there is other e-mails. the next part of the story, date petraeus. he was in charge of the c.i.a. occur this time. we talked about there were high level people, including petraeus and former secretary of defense, leon panetta, who seemed to go along with the whole benghazi story. and we were scratching our heads at the time wondering well, why would they potentially do that? what do you make of that and do you think general david petraeus, now that he's no longhorn with the c.i.a. and had that scandal, could come forward and end up being the good guy in all of this and telling what he knows? >> well, i think that's what he should do. i think it would go a long way to helping him because i've never seen anybody go from such a high to low plateau so quickly over something that obviously shouldn't have happened and the whole thing was a disaster. what's happened to his reputation. i think it probably could help
4:11am
him very much if he tells the truth. if he's willing to tell the truth. let's see what happens. he certainly lot more than probably anybody else. it will be very interesting to see how he comes out. >> brian: here is the thing with general petraeus. he never signed off on those talk points. the guy under him did. number two, he got worried about the intercepts. the guys who killed our four guys were talking to other guys, we heard it. that's why it's so inconceivable the secretary of state would tell the family of those who lost their lives that we're going to crack down on that producer with this video. that's why it's so unthinkable the president would go on letterman and "the view" and say we're looking into this, we really don't know, when you had your c.i.a. say we heard them bragging about the killing. this is just a charade. >> you're right. after it all took place, it was terrible that it took place and it is inconceivable it could have and gross imcompetence and probably worse than that. but after all this happened, what did we do?
4:12am
we should have sent in guys to knock the hell out of them. what did we do in we did nothing. >> brian: we know exactly where they are and who they are and where they're located. "celebrity apprentice" last night, fireworks, two down. let's listen. >> steve: spoiler alert. >> i think you've done an amazing job and you certainly are the comeback player of the decade as far as "celebrity apprentice" or apprentice is concerned. but penn has really been the star so far and i really do want to see him in the final. lisa, you're fired. his record has been better than your record. what i'm going to do is because i believe so much in what you're doing for diabetes, i'm going to give you an extra $20,000. i think you are absolutely fantastic, little john. but you're fired. >> steve: so you got rid of lisa and little john. this sets up the title against trace versus penn. this is going to be fantastic. >> next week it will be live and
4:13am
they're two good guys. little john, i tell you what, that was a tough one because he was good. he was really good. >> gretchen: all right. >> brian: will there be another season? >> yes, there will. in fact, we're doing it right now. they've already sent me a check. usually a check means good things. >> steve: you're the only hit that nbc's got. they need 12 more shows like you. >> they have their up fronts today, we'll see how they come out. >> steve: donald trump joins us every monday, sir, thank you very much. see you next week. >> bye. >> gretchen: have a business you want to shut down? better be prepared to cut the governor in on your fireproof sale. more proof of a regulation nation coming up. >> steve: then when her navy husband deployed, she fills his seat at her dinner table with other heros. the story of how a community banded together to keep the smiley family together. they join us live very shortly on angie's list

>> steve: if you're thinking of opening a business in milwaukee, you may want to think twice. the city not only makes it difficult to go into business, it makes it even costlier to go out of business. what's up with that? here to explain this week's most
4:18am
ridiculous red tape, nicky neily. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> steve: let me get this straight. so in milwaukee, if you want to go out of business, you've got to buy a license to go out of business? >> you need to purchase a license to go out of business and fill out a big stack of paperwork so that they know what inventory you're trying to sell. once you've done that, you need to pay a fee based on the length of your going out of business sale, as well as pay $2 for every $1,000 you get rid of. >> steve: a lot of people go out of business because they don't have any money, but they want money from them, right? >> yep. they're not good business people, but oh, well. >> steve: all right. let's move on to idaho. famous for potatoes and famous for eggs? >> yes. why did the chicken cross the road? to escape these awful regulations. >> steve: i don't blame them. >> in idaho, if you sell foreign eggs, you need to -- alt eggs needs -- all the eggs need to be
4:19am
stamped with legible ink that says foreign eggs from, and state the country where it's from. >> steve: or somebody will get in trouble? >> yes. if they're not in the shell, the egg product means to be stamped, if you sell them in a store, your sign needs to be two inches or larger font that says foreign eggs, and again, if you serve any product that has a foreign egg in it, you also need to mark that. >> steve: thank goodness, 'cause people need to know. congratulations, that's stupid. in ohio, if somebody is transporting trees and this would include christmas trees, there is something very important they've got to do there, isn't there? >> yes. five trees or more or 100 pounds of boughs or more, you can be fined $5,000 or spend 30 days in jail if you don't have a bill of sale with you. >> steve: you got to have the invoice from the guy you bought the trees from, otherwise that
4:20am
state is going to wind up with $1,000 in their pocket. you know, a lot of these rules sound like they are just ways to make money for the states of the cities or whatever. >> definitely. >> steve: all right. every week she looks at crazy regulations. nicky neeley joining us from the capitol. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> steve: amtrak's books are off the rails. why they unveiling 70 pricey new trains today and who is going to pay for them? we're going to talk about that. then, when her navy husband was shipped out, she invited one guest a week for an entire year to sit at his seat at the dinner table. the awesome story of how that changed that family when they come on in to studio e. i've been taking a multivitamin for years. centrum silver.
4:21am
both of us actually. our pharmacist recommended it. and that makes me feel pretty good about it. and then i heard about a study looking at multivitamins and the long term health benefits. and what do you know? they used centrum silver in the study. makes me feel even better, that's what i take. sorry, we take.

sounds like there is a deliberate effort to make sure they didn't get that charity status. the 501 c 4 status, which would be they could not then fully function and operate. so it could be more than just investigating them. it could have been trying to stop these organizations from forming. >> brian: by the way, the first time i realized the irs was not perfect, the odd couple, 1975. they investigated felix, oscar wasn't filing for years, yet they haul felix in. >> steve: but they were roommates. >> brian: we're going to show it the whole next hour. >> gretchen: fantastic. >> steve: this also does not make any sense. remember the benghazi scandal -- and by the way, it is a scandal and john mccain yesterday said it was a cover-up as well. it all had to do with things that happened inside the department of state. the state department headed up by hillary clinton, right? now, the democrats are saying, look, the republicans are trying to make this a political thing. i don't know, some maybe, but don't most people just want to know exactly why those four
5:09am
brave americans died? admiral -- ambassador pickering was one of the fellows selected for the accountability review board. in other words, they install these people to take a look at what happened. extraordinarily, they did not interview on the record hillary clinton, the woman in charge, the ambassador explained it this way on cbs. >> we interviewed secretary clinton. we interviewed secretary -- deputy secretary burns and deputy secretary nighties. we briefed them on the report. we told them where we were. it was near the end. we had plenty of opportunity had we felt it was necessary, all five of us, to ask them questions. we didn't believe that was necessary and i don't see any reason to do so now. >> steve: they're kind of playing word games because apparently he said we met with hillary clinton. did they interview her with a note taker? no. that's important. >> gretchen: and i also think that it's not maybe just the
5:10am
state department. i mean, when you really flush out this whole story, it's still not known what the white house's involvement is with regard to who directed susan rice, the ambassador to the un to give those talking points. who was in that special meeting that saturday? still a lot of unanswered questions. >> brian: the last thing on that, this guy hicks, was talking to her at 2:00 o'clock in the morning. didn't he tell you at 2:00 o'clock in the morning, the night of the attack that this was an attack, not a spontaneous demonstration after a video because obviously if you saw the testimony, that wasn't it. let's move on and continue about this story. what's going on at the white house at this time? pictures are emerging of where is the national security advisor? where is tom brennan, for example. then where is tom donnellan? you would think they're the ones who came out after bin laden was killed. they'd be the ones who go on the sunday shows. they'd be the ones advising the president on something of this
5:11am
nature. turns out he was there. he just didn't show up publicly. there he is the night in the oval office, the night this all took place, 9-11-2012. >> steve: what exactly has his role been? remember -- he was a political operative for a while and one of the guys that fannie mae and he's the guy in charge of national security for the white house. that's extraordinary. >> brian: he is in charge of the middle east and north africa. so you would think that he's there and they wouldn't put ambassador rice out there to explain to the american people what happened when talk to the guy in charge! >> steve: when jim jones left that job, he said that tom donnellan's lack of overseas experience, he said, quote, you have no experience with the overseas military. a lot of people feel that guy is the national security and yet he was during benefiting. what was tom donnellan's role? we want to know. tom, give us a call.
5:12am
>> gretchen: and it's interesting that some reporters now, more reporters want to know what the president was doing that night. they had a relatively heated press conference with his spokesperson, jay carney, on friday. so what has made the media start to become interested in this story is my first question. and number two, the talking points. and jonathan karl from abc was one of the first people who picked up on this to her and he broke the story on friday that those talking points were edited 12 times. >> steve: because jay carney said just once. that's a lie. >> clearly there is a credibility question that the white house has to deal with because this directly credits what they have said about this. >> a week ago, mr. carney, whose usefulness to this administration is diminishing rapidly, a week ago he said benghazi was a long time ago. this is a very live issue. >> brian: jay carney is the one
5:13am
that gets thrown under the bus each day as if he's making the policy. >> steve: somebody writes the answers, when somebody asks this question, you say that. it's time for the main stream media and the white house press corps, come on, ask a lot of these questions. let's ask about the irs, too, because that blatantly looks completely against the law. and it's chilling. so let's see if we get more answers. >> gretchen: here are some of the e mails. it's like blame ago postman for delivering a pitiful information. >> brian: if jay carney is willing to destroy himself, says sky v, for this administration, let him. >> steve: allall right. i got a feeling there will be a briefing later today. meanwhile, navy seals shot down and killed by the taliban. two years later, family members still looking for answers. >> very possible that something dastardly went on that night and we want to know if it did. >> steve: possible. why can't this family get any
5:14am
answers? that straight ahead. >> gretchen: brand-new to the job, but this freshman lamarck making waves with the administration. and it's all to protect you, congressman richard hudson next.
5:15am
5:16am
5:17am
>> brian: our next guest is making waves with the administration. it's all to protect you from obamacare, so to speak. richard hudson is from north carolina. what's your problem with the
5:18am
implementation of obamacare? >> obamacare is a bad deal for the american people. it's going to destroy our health care system. but also costing jobs right now as employers realize what the implementation will look like, even max biocox, the senator who repped right the bill said it's a train wreck. >> brian: when which is a little scary because he should be his biggest advocate. but he's retirement. i don't know if it's reaction. but first off, you say when you walk around and talk to people, especially in the service industry, what do they have to do by january 1? >> the obamacare is fully implemented january 1, even though the regulations haven't been written yet. brian, we've got 33,000 pages of regulations that they've already written. if we stacked it up here, it will be seven feet tall. we still don't know what it's going to look like. >> brian: what you're doing, there is an employee hours regulation, a mandatory enroll regulation. but i thought there was supposed to be a time period in which employers can decide what they're going to do. how are they going to react in terms of total employees and in
5:19am
terms of insurance plan. >> there is a problem. there is a provision called auto enrollment. i've got a bill to repeal that and what -- there is a regulation that says employee has time to decide whether they want to be in the health care plan, but this regulation tells employer day one, you got to enroll all your employees and so if you run a restaurant or retail place, a lot of your employees move in and out of the job, you might have young people on their parents' insurance, you might have folks on their spouse's insurance them don't get to decide whether they're enrolled. they're automatically enrolled. >> brian: when you talk about paperwork, but this paperwork when these insure -- when the people that put you in office say, how do i deal with this, what do you tell them? >> it's frustrating. i don't know the answers either. the federal government, the people writing the regulations for obamacare and hhs don't know the answers. i talk to business people every day and lawyers, plural, can't fem what my health cost this year is going to cost. this is causing job creators to sit on money.
5:20am
>> brian: so that will affect the economy. i think a lot of people listening thinks republicans are against obamacare, democrats are for it. i think that line is blaring right now. people are getting panicky because they have no idea what it is. >> at this point, we need to worry about individuals. we need to worry about these business, the jobs. we need to find ways to slow this thing down, to chip away at it. ultimately we want to repeal it. that's what the vote this week in congress is all about. we're going to vote to repeal it and then we want to replace it with real health care reform. >> brian: what day would that be? >> wednesday or thursday this week, we'll be voting. >> brian: heck of a rookie year. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> brian: it will be a crazy thing up until january 1. coming up, the u.n. has a new solution to fight hunger. hey, all you starving people, go and eat bugs. we're not kidding. then money, the number one reason couples fight. four simple ways to make it stop. first, get rid of all of it. start from zero ♪ [ acoustic guitar: upbeat ]

5:26am
trust. a joint account helps establish that trust. there is a popular system called a three pot system where you have one joint account where your paychecks go in, big shared payments, like mortgage payments or rent come out of that. then you have separate individual accounts for your private expense. >> gretchen: i like the idea of having the separate one, because i think both parties want to have a certain sense of independence, too, right? >> exactly. it can help with the next step, which is budgeting. so if you already have those accounts set up, it's easy to transfer money into them and automate a budget for yourself. if you want more detail about your budget, you can go and use a tool like mint.com or something like that. >> brian: so that will make it automatic. savings plan. in the big picture, where should you be putting that money? there used to be the days where you had the passbook you and fill that up. that is with an eighth of a percent interest, that's not happening. >> right. savings plans are super important. one of the hardest parts for newlyweds. the important thing is setting goals. there may come a time in life when you have a rent payment to make, you're thinking about making a down payment on a house, you want a vacation and

5:46am
>> steve: the irs targeting conservative groups to the distorting of the benghazi talking points, is it safe to say we can still trust our government? peter johnson, jr. joins us live. what do you think? >> steve, this week we learned through the benghazi talking points changes that our white house didn't trust any of us enough to tell the truth. and our government's tax man dislikes some of us enough to target tea party organizations who dared to advertise the bill of rights, the constitution, and patriot in their names. and if you get too upset about the culture of deception and nixonian abuse of power, don't claim that you're worried about truth, justice or the american way. you're just a partisan politician. and maybe even more dangerous than the terrorists who are
5:47am
still on the loose from benghazi. it's not bad enough that the administration ignored the warnings, did nothing and four brave americans died. it got worse when the government spent 12 drafts trying to figure out how not to tell the truth about an obvious terrorist attack and another eight months trying to hide the deception. and now our administration is loath to name the terrorists. they are, though, happy to say that the irs knows who the real enemies of the state are. those who dared to criticize how, quote, the country is being run, unquote. chilling doesn't describe the shock, and former congressman said yesterday here on fox, the tone is set at the top. the last week is seeing how truth and political enemies are targeted when government speak renames domestic terror as workplace violence, when a culture of deception is excused as bureaucratic infighting, when
5:48am
tax terror reigns, will we, congress and the courts allow the words, we the people, to become a mark of suspicion rather than our unique american badge of honor? it's scary stuff, steve. >> steve: it is. >> it's very, very tough stuff going on this week. >> made one minor change to the talking points, dropped it by and produced by the c.i.a. and even prior to that, made very few -- had very few inputs on it. we would fully expect the investigation to be thorough and for corrections to be made in a case like this. i believe the irs has addressed that and has taken some action and there isen investigation ongoing. >> steve: that's right. by the fact that that came out this past week, peter, where jay carney said, we just changed one thing. well, there are 12 different versions of it! each version got further and further away. >> unfortunately, a real culture of the section has been revealed not only with regard to the
5:49am
benghazi talking points, forget about what happened before. the death of these four americans, what a horror show. but a deception in terms of saying what the truth was and now the fact that the irs is targeted organizations that have the words constitution, bill of rights, tea party, patriot in their names, those folks should not become a suspect class. as congressman kucinich says, it comes from the top. it's a tone that's being set. the president has a lot to do this week to help restore confidence in our country, in our government because a lot of people are saying, how can this happen? how can this be so sad and so wrong? apparently for so long with regard to the irs and the tea party since 2011. >> steve: doesn't look like the white house can keep their stories straight. >> lots to do to keep our country strong. >> steve: great comments today. >> thank you. >> steve: straight ahead, they refused to let their injuries stop them and our own anna kooiman is finding that out
